Everyone knows how a regularly updated blog can be great for your business. Everyone also knows how time consuming writing blog posts and exporting images can be. I created this quick tutorial and Photoshop action to get you thinking about ways you can expedite that process. One thing that used to take us a considerable amount of time was creating the 2-up vertical images with our logo at the bottom. I used to have an action that simply added the logo (or watermark) to the bottom of the image but no really fast way of combining two selected vertical images. Take a look at the video below and the included action, it just might get you thinking about ways you can speed up your bloggin workflow!

In my workflow I use Bridge, but this can also be done in Lightroom (shown below).
In Lightroom, right click on your selected images, choose “Edit In” and “Open as Layers in Photoshop.” You might see this organized differently in different versions.
Have questions? Post them in the comments below and I will do my best to answer them. As always, you can also hit me up on twitter – @phindyphil. Sorry if the quality is a little fuzzy, I’ll try a higher resolution next time!
